Webinar: Wood, Forests & Embodied Carbon

When:  Nov 14, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Committee on the Environment

This program explains why increased forest protection and improved stewardship are key to addressing the climate crisis and reducing the embodied carbon of wood products — and how the green building movement can help.

 

Topics include:

  • Forests’ role in combatting climate change
  • Is increased wood use and mass timber construction beneficial or detrimental?
  • Forest carbon: what it is, how it works and why it determines the real carbon footprint of wood products
  • Climate-friendlier forestry and practical wood procurement strategies to promote it
  • Illegally logged and traded wood products: the climate connection + a new and innovative approach to avoiding illegal wood in building construction
